In the Regeneration Biology simulation, you will study regeneration in different vertebrates. Will you be able to figure out why humans cannot regenerate as well as other animals?

About This Simulation

In the Regeneration Biology simulation, you will study regeneration in different vertebrates. Amputate the limb of a salamander and observe how the whole limb regenerates!
Will you be able to figure out why humans cannot regenerate as well as other animals?
